Hope everyone had a painfree Christmas and hoping for a Happy Healthy 2011 for all of you. Can anyone please respond with names of their Chiari Surgeon in Western PA/Pittsburgh area. Any feedback ( the good, bad or ugly) would be greatly appreciated, trying to decide which doctor to get an appt with. We are lucky to have access to UPMC and Allegheny General Hospital which both have good neuro surgery depts, just not sure who the most experienced, knowledable, skilled etc, Chiari Docs are... Thanks for the imput
